Arrived at PS HQ around 11am. They break up the interview into 4 portions. HR interview, HR presentation, facility tour, sim evaluation. I did the HR interview first and questions that were asked were pretty standard.  Then a scenario where the PIC is flying an approach what sorts of things as the FO am I looking for? If he goes below the MDA what do you do? What if after you let him know to go missed he continues even further? What do you do? They concluded the HR interview by allowing me to ask questions of which I had a few. HR interview was probably where I preformed best. You have to remember that at PS you're the point of contact for all customers. They really want to see what you'll be a good... Continue Reading this Interview Experience

  1. Aug 13, 2020 Interview was simple straight forward, over the web. Asked questions about approaches and regs, nothing complicated they definitely weren’t trying to trick you, just test your... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. Aug 05, 2020 Technical interview covered the Jeppesen charts which were previously sent via email. Definitely get familiarized with the charts ahead of time and ask yourself what you would do in different scenarios concerning each chart. Most questions asked were of the "what is this? what is that?" variety but there were a few scenario based questions as well. If you're instrument current you should have no problems as it wasn't anything too intense. After the assistant chief pilot... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Aug 04, 2020 I applied before the COVID pandemic existed, back in Jan/Feb 2020. I only mention this because I heard vicariously that they now are wading through something like 1100 applications / resumes presently. I completed the web/phone (technical) interview in April. They send you a group of about 10-12 Jepp charts (approaches, STARs, DEPs, and sectionals) and then all the questions are based on those charts - so study those to the fullest and you'll do fine. If you make it past that first... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Aug 04, 2020 Technical interview done over video chat. Then to planesense HQ for simulator evaluation and HR interview. Become familiar with Jeppeson charts. Simulator is very hard to control if you have limited experience in a simulator like that, however the consensus is that they are mearly looking for strong instrument skills in the...

  5. Aug 04, 2020 Going into the interview I was very nervous being the first airline type interview I've had. However the people there are all very friendly, nice and easy to talk to. If you get to the in person interview they'll ask you a couple of technical questions but nothing that's ridiculous, overall though it was a very good... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Aug 04, 2020 The interview was fairly straight forward. Some got sim first, others HR first. Technical was done prior on the phone. Sim was an approach and missed approach, with a procedure turn into JFK. HR was just getting to know you, what your background was, wanted to make sure you were good with the 8 on 6 off...

  7. Jul 15, 2020 I thought the interview went great but I am a mainline pilot. I believe this was a huge downfall. It was a technical portion for direct entry CA with a chief pilot and I don’t believe I missed a single question from charts/plates for approaches and arrivals. They send you charts/etc prior so just brush up on each and be familiar with them. Other than that it was basic questions pertaining to IFR... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Jul 08, 2020 It was a really awesome interview experience. The people were very friendly. The facility is beautiful. All the questions on the study guide here are accurate.. for the technical portion just study the packet of Jepp plates they send you and for the sim portion it’s going to be IFR in a bonanza sim (that’s what they put me in at least) be yourself and they’ll be friendly in...

  9. Jun 10, 2020 FO Interview Technical interview was done online in March. Second half was delayed due to Covid. Got a call at the beginning of June asking me to come in for a simulator eval and HR interview. Started with an HR presentation which answered most of my questions. Next was the simulator eval.  Not as hard as to hold altitude as I thought it was going to be! As long as you keep a good scan going you'll be fine. HR interview lasted 20 minutes with maybe 5 simple questions (they're already... Continue reading this interview experience

  10. It was a very relaxing interview that lasted approximately 4 hrs in length with all the candidates. I applied by sending my resume to the email on their website and than received a call and did a short phone interview and was invited to their headquarters to do in person interview, we had a hr portion and technical portion. Hr portion was very easy questions that anyone can answer. And technical part was basic ifr questions, weather questions, and aerodynamics, which was very easy, and I was...
